In conjunction with the conference, the department hosted its annual alumni reception on Saturday evening, December 8. A lively gathering of faculty, residents and alumni turned out to greet old friends. 

"It means a lot for our alumni to come together and connect and support and acknowledge what a great department this is," commented Dr. Hemmings.
